atish, San Francisco (listed, PLAY, house-heads)

Bio:
San Francisco-based Atish is rising quickly in the international dance music scene. Raised in the Chicago suburbs and schooled in the hard sciences to become a computer engineer, Atish's left-brained technical precision complement his sensitive, emotional approach to sound. His musical career started at age five as a classically trained violinist. Since, he's taken on other instruments including trombone, tuba, guitar, drums, and bass, and over the years, he's played in jazz, rock, and marching bands, even enjoying a stint in hip-hop production. This all led to his true love, the art of DJing.

Atish describes his style as expressive melodic deep house: music that sings to the soul while moving the dance floor, communicating the joy of love, the depths of darkness, and intensity of a spiritual dance music journey for himself and anyone listening. Energized by the relationship between DJ and dancefloor, Atish is known for his quirky stage persona, donning costumes, wigs, and even a wedding dress during gigs. But don't let the free wheeling expression fool you - Atish is a disciplined artist with an unhealthy obsession for technical and artistic perfection.

Since his first DJ gig at a small bar in 2010, Atish's sound has taken him from the local San Francisco scene to music festivals, clubs, and afterhours gigs across every continent except Antarctica. He's earned the respect of legendary DJs, notably Lee Burridge, who regularly hand picks Atish to tag with and open for him. In just over three years years, Atish has gained an avid following of fans and the respect of fellow underground artists around the world. In San Francisco, he's established himself as the resident DJ of 222 Hyde's most successful party, Tutu Tuesday in addition to being a Regular of Listed Productions' monthly PLAY party at the EndUp. Coming off two tours in 2012 which included stops in Zurich, Berlin, Tokyo, and Cologne along with another tour spanning Africa and Australia in Spring 2013, the quirky Atish shows no signs of slowing down.
